Higher Ed and COVID-19

Daniel Sansing and I discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic encourages colleges and universities to reconsider how we support autistic students in higher education. Is online education an accommodation or does it leave out important life skills?

Learning about Teaching

I’ve learned a lot about teaching over the last 30 years. Like everyone else, I’ve been learning about teaching since my first day as a student. Unfortunately, the lessons suggest that education is broken, and so is the profession of teaching. Or, as a colleague once told me, “We don’t need no stinking autistics.” Check out this episode!

Follow Directions

Order matters to me, and it matters to many autistics. We like things done a certain way, especially if there are rules or guidelines provided. Directions offer rules, or at least some guidelines. Ignoring directions feels wrong to me. Check out this episode!

Surviving 2020

This podcast is scheduled for Election Day in the United States, November 3, 2020. Though I have some interesting episodes with guests recorded, I decided this was not the week for episodes on education or general health topics. Instead, the election of 2020 is a reminder that this has been a challenging year around the globe. Sometimes, it’s good to step back, take a deep breath, and realize that surviving difficult times is an accomplishment. Check out this episode!
